Staying at Villa Araliya made my time in Negombo perfect. Owners & staff were very friendly and welcoming at all times. The hotel is extremely clean (way above SL average) and the ambience is just lovely. Close proximity to the beach. Couldn't ask for more. Certainly a recommendation if you're visiting Negombo!

The hotel is located near the airport and very close to the beach. The rooms are commodious, clean and charming. The atmosphere is very relaxed and I felt very comfortable there. The hotel offers a spacious pool, wlan in the main area and a delicious vegetarian restaurant with the best italien pizza. The staff is very friendly and helpful. For...

I booked this hotel after going through the reviews and presuming that we will end our holidays with a bang . But it was other ways. We reached the hotel and were told that it will take sometime for the room to be ready to check in. After half an hour (12 o'clock) my husband politely asked a person by...

This boutique hotel is managed by a Dutch lady and her Sri Lankan partner. Great service, amazing food and very nice and clean houses. Our House ( Apt. 4) was on two level with two bedrooms and plenty of space. Swimming pool is clean and nice. A short walk from the Main Street.

Lovely rooms. Spotlessly clean. Nice pool and good breakfast. Quiet location but still easy walk to bars and restaurants on main road. A bit expensive if on a tight budget but worth the splurge. Staff friendly and helpful

A nice place: very clean and comfortable, friendly helpfull management, great pool area where they serve a good breakfast. Cash only is inconvenient, especially when they " dont have any change" f. I. when you pay for AirPort transfer. Price setting is somewhat steep when I compare to other accomodations I had in Sri Lanka, where $110 might carry you...

I cannot recommend this place highly enough . Beautiful rooms , and environment, sparkling swimming pool but most of all every one so friendly and helpful . Especially as I was on my own here . The owner Stephanie is a yoga teacher and runs yoga classes here which I unfortunately didn't manage to do. It was a great place...

Tasteful little escape. Arrived in the middle of the night after a long flight and checked in for a short sleep before heading East the next morning. Our room was spacious, rustic and very clean. We enjoyed a quick dip in the crystal clean pool before a simple but tasty brekkie washed down by several awesome cups of tea. We...

Stayed in a beautiful villa with a gorgeous pool and gardens. The pool was a bonus as the beach in Negombo is not the best. The owners were very friendly and our children were particularly fond of the dogs, kittens and turtle. This was our last destination in Srilanka and it was the perfect end to our holiday.

Our least welcoming stay in Sri Lanka. Fortunately, it was for one night only. While every thing was clean and tidy, we were faced with notice after notice expounding the rules of the house from use of electricity to payment for using the pool towels. The breakfast was the least generous we had in Sri Lanka, possibly one of the...
